LOS ANGELES (AP) — After having a goal waved off in overtime, Bryan Rust quickly made sure it didn’t happen twice. His wraparound goal with 1:15 remaining on the clock in overtime gave the Pittsburgh Penguins a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings, giving them a sweep of their California road trip for the first time since 1996-97. Rust appeared to put in his own rebound 19 seconds earlier, but the goal was waved off when he was ruled offside. Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist as he became the 11th player in NHL history with 450 career multi-point games. He also extended his point streak to seven games.
